In order to remove really nasty stuff (like Trojans and the like), youhave to run a virus scan BEFORE your operating system loads.

What helped me was Kaspersky's Rescue CD, which is a bootable CD. You can find it here.

A good description how to do it can be found here.

If the virus is "well written", it will not let you restore to a previous point. Download the CD, burn it and start your computer from the CD. (You might have to change your BIOS settings to do that. In order to access the boot options, pressthe F10 key while the Gateway screen is displayed during the startupprocess. This opens a Boot menu with the option to start the computerto any of the available drives. Use the UP ARROW and DOWN ARROW keys toselect a menu option, and then press the ENTER key to start to theselected device.)

Anti-Virus Program detects virus but after re-boot...still there!


Ever wonder why it is that when your Anti-Virus Program detects a virus and apparently seems to contain or delete it, the virus is there all over again after a re-boot and the Anti-Virus Program once again contains it or deletes it? Seems like a never ending battle right?

Well here's the reason and the solution:

1) Reason: Bill Gates

A smart and nice man no doubt about it but he overlooked one thing about Windows: ANY Anti-Virus Program out there, by default, is NOT permitted to even knock on the door of the System Restore File. So what happens when your Anti-Virus Program halts, contains, or removes a virus? The virus is there ALL over again in a vicious cycle it seems. Why? Because the Virus IS allowed to knock on the door. In fact, a virus can even step foot so far inside the system restore department that it actually BACKS ITSELF UP...in the system restore file. THAT's how the never ending battle occurs!

2) Solution: Ahhh...got your attention now don't I? Hmmm well if you really want to know how to put the brakes on this vicious cycle, first I'm going to need you to create a PayPal account and then...only kidding here is the solution:

Answer: Once your Anti-Virus has detected a virus..don't waste ANY more precious time trying one thing or another. You MUST at that point, TURN OFF YOUR SYSTEM RESTORE FOR ALL PARTITIONED DRIVES! Once the system restore is OFF, THEN and ONLY then would it make the most sense to perform a FULL-SYSTEM scan. You see, full system scan to an Anti-Virus Program does NOT include the restore file, while a virus DOES! So, with the restore off...now we're fighting on equal terms and your Anti-Virus will prevail!! Just remember to turn the restore back on once you have confirmed you have a clean system.

Yep! that's the answer that would save you HOW much $ ? (from having to call Geek-Squad or similar outfit)

Here's the procedure for turning off the restore and there is more than one way to get to the ocean so to speak but here is the shortest route I believe:

1) Point mouse at <start>
2) Right-Click mouse on <my computer>
3) Left-Click mouse on < Properties>
4) The very top left tab click mouse on <system restore>
5) Put a check mark in the box that says <turn off system restore>

You're done! Now perform that full system scan now and after the scan is complete, ....point that mouse over that box again but this time...take the check mark OUT of the box and this will allow restore to function once again. Same holds true for desktops as well as laptops running virtually any version of Microsoft Windows.

Touch pad stopped working. fix it?


Since it is a new computer, the fastest way to take of this issue, is to go to system restore and restore your notebook to a restore point prior to having this issue.

How do i restore the emachine


Remove any DVDs or CDs from the optical drives and then unplug all peripheral devices except for the keyboard and mouse.

Click the "Windows" button and then type "eMachines recovery management" into the search box. Click on "eMachines recovery management" in the results list and then click the "Restore" tab.
Click "Password Settings" and then type a new password into the text box.
Click "OK" and then click "Restore System to Factory Default".

Type the recovery password into the "Password" text box and then click "OK". Click "Next" To start the recovery process.

Click "Finish" and then wait for your computer to restart.
This procedure could take several minutes. Once your computer has restarted, you'll be prompted to create a new user account, enter the date and time and set up the internet settings.

or if you are running XP


If you set your machine back to eMachines factory settings, it might help you for a short while but if you don't have effective virus protection your problems will return in short order.

You should get rid of this virus with an effective virus remover.

You can run Bitdefender's free online scan which doesn't need to be downloaded http://www.bitdefender.com/scan8/ie.html

If you know when you got the virus, you can do a system restore to a time before the virus was on your system. This article tells you how to run it from safe mode http://bertk.mvps.org/html/safemode.html

Your best protection in general is a complete internet security suite such as Bitdefender or Norton internet security 2009.

More information here http://www.ask-the-computer-doc.com/comp...

If you need to totally rebuild your system and you don't have a recovery disk, contact eMachines to get one.

You might also try a Windows repair install if you have the operating system disk. Follow the directions here for XP http://www.michaelstevenstech.com/XPrepa...

Microinventions PD952P wireless mouse stopped working. New Batteries installed. The light comes on in the mouse and the other MI device that connects to the puter via USB. Was working fine yesterday!!


1.) Press the button on the receiver (the "antenna" which is connected to the PC by USB) to reset it. Sometimes, they don't have a button. If that's the case, unplug it from the PC, wait 5 seconds, and then reconnect it to the PC. Then, press the reset button on the bottom of the mouse. You should do these in the exact order described. If this doesn't work, then...
2.) It may be some sort of settings/software update issue. Rather than trying to weed out the particular issue, performing a System Restore would be much easier. Click Start/All Programs (or just "Programs")/Accessories/System Tools/System Restore. You will want to choose a Restore Point with a date which is BEFORE your issue started. System Restore can take up to 20 minutes and should not be interrupted. If this fails, try...
3.) Check the driver. In Windows XP, click Start, RIGHT-click My Computer, click Properties, select the Hardware tab, click Device Manager. In Windows Vista/7, click Start, RIGHT-click Computer, click Properties, click on Device Manager (the link at the top of the left-hand pane). Look for anything in this list which has a yellow question mark or exclamation point. If there is, Right-click it and select Uninstall. Then, Right-click on Computer (top of the list) and click Scan for Hardware Changes. This will reinstall it.
4.) If that doesn't work, you may have a virus. Scan with your antivirus software. If this is unsuccessful, follow your manufacturer's instructions for a System Recovery. Important: This will delete all of your files too, so backup anything on the PC which is important to you (pics, music, documents, etc.).
Hope this helps and best of luck!

Laptop keyboard has stopped working


Use system restore to restore your PC back to a date before you began having virus problems.

Start Menu -> Programs -> Accessories -> System Tools -> System Restore

When you start System Restore, it will ask if you want to restore to an earlier time, choose a date from before the virus problems started and follow the prompts from there. Your computer will restart, the restore process usually takes 5-15 minutes and then your system reboots.

Let me know if this works for you.

Hope this helps. Please take a moment to rate this solution. Thanks.
